Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide theoretical-practical concepts useful for understanding the dynamics that turn up within groups (intra-group) and between groups (inter-group) focusing on a perspective that also examines individuals and their specific. Theories aimed at analyzing and understanding relationships and psychic reality within groups will be studied. The theories of Freud, Bion and Foulkes together with other authors will offer the basis for the deepening of the methodological epistemic field of the group dimension. Recent research and news cases will be discussed in the classroom.

Program

PART I (14 hours): the first part will focus on theoretical-practical concepts useful for understanding group psychology and will integrate the two orientations of dynamic and social psychology as the necessary basis for understanding and analyzing group dynamics. Much attention will be dedicated to the concepts of Freud, Bion, Anzieu, Foulkes etc. as “essential tools” for analyzing individual and group psychic life.

PART II (14 hours): the second part will present the group’s characteristics such as psychic activity and device: the dynamic phenomena of life’s group, the various setting types and the functions of groups (clinical groups, psychotherapy, training, rehabilitation work, institutional therapy, prevention, etc.) will be explained highlighting the theoretical and applicative position also through examples taken from the clinical and training field. The skills to manage and facilitate group processes will be consolidated.

PART III (8 hours): the third part will be dedicated to the exploration of intrapsychic dynamics and relationships in the psychoanalytic field. Contemporary psychoanalytic analysis will be studied in depth: starting from classical studies on trauma up to the most recent neurobiological research. The phenomenon of massive individual and social trauma within the family, intergenerational, cultural and social level will be analyzed.
